This dog has been appearing at street rallies and protests in Greece for nearly two years. He has been spotted amid exploding tear gas canisters, confronting riot police, and from all reports has shown enormous solidarity by always siding with the protesters. The Guardian has an amazing slide show here. Forget 'austerity packages,' please, and give this dog a low-interest bone and a full pension.

THE LAST FIREWALL AGAINST THE LIES
Independent media has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support our critical Winter campaign now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing.
